Re: FC8 (32-bit) screen dimming

On upgrading from FC6 to FC8 on my laptop, the screen dims almost immediately at the beginning of the boot up sequence. The screen is bright for any length of time until the messages shows that the kernel is booting. Then the screen dims so that text and graphics are barely discernible. This is true in text as well as graphics modes (runlevels 3 and 5).

Does anyone know what setup file may be causing this?
Could be to do with the screen saver - it fades the X gui out before it starts the screen saver ?

Could be that it's sensing low battery power and trying to save power ?

Could be that during boot up ntpd resets the time forward, and the screen saver noitices there has been no activity for X minutes and starts the fade out.
